“Excellent Pasta Dishes”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Typcially, I am not a fan of chain restaurants, but Macaroni Grill offers fresh pasta dishes served by very friendly staff, in a slightly bustling atmosphere. My favorite is the bowtie pasta with chicken and sun-dried tomatoes--excellent! I prefer to dine here with family or friends, not business clients, as the atmosphere is a bit loud. The food is always well-prepared and cooked to perfection!

Food good and reasonable. Visit for lunch during the week found place deserted and blessfully quiet. One in a while they have coupons.

“Wonderful bread”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Food is good, great atmosphere. Does get a little busy on weekend evenings. Very good pasta, salads, and excellent bread. I recommend a visit if you are in the Briarwood Mall area.

“Good but not fantastic”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

We visited the Macaroni Grill on a Tuesday night and assumed we would be seated immediately. We were surprised to find there were people waiting to be seated. Our wait was approximately 20 minutes as we were told. Our server was a nice guy, but very businesslike and not talkative other than to ask what we would like to order. We were a party of 4 and chose a few appetizers to start, the Zucchini Fritti and Baked Prosciutto and Mozzarella. The Zucchini Friiti was pretty greasy but the Baked Prosciutto and Mozzarella was full of flavor. As our entrees, two of us had the Carmela's Chicken Rigatoni, one member of our party asked for Eggplant Parmigiana, while the last order was for a Mamas Trio. The Chicken Rigatoni was very tasty and Mamas Trio offered you an opportunity to try three different entrees. The included items were tasty, but the sauce was very bland. The Eggplant Parmigiana was a large portion, but did not compare at all to Eggplant Parmigiana I have had at a local restaurant in our hometown. We also ordered a side of meatballs and there were 4 meatballs the size you would put in meatball or wedding soup, which was a disappointment, especially considering the $3 price tag. Salad was an extra cost as well. Would I return? Probably not....I think I would go to the Olive Garden instead.
